4 upcoming whatsapp updates you're going to love

Recent WhatsApp updates and privacy policy changes have caused a substantial number of its long-term users to explore other instant messaging apps, such as Telegram and Signal. Needless to say, that’s not what WhatsApp wants to see happen. To give those who have not left yet more reasons to stay, WhatsApp developers are now testing multiple new features, which should soon be released as updates for Android and iOS.

Multi-Device Login

According to WhatsApp parent company Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg, WhatsApp beta testers will soon be able to log in to WhatsApp Web or the WhatsApp Desktop application even without the WhatsApp smartphone app running on their mobile device. Most other instant messaging apps already support multi-device login, so it’s about time WhatsApp users get to enjoy this convenient feature as well.

View Once

WhatsApp has more than 2 billion users around the world, and many of them use the instant messaging app to share sensitive information. Soon, WhatsApp users will be able to send an image or video that will disappear as soon as the recipient views it, making it impossible to share it with any other people.

New Archive

Right now, the option to archive a chat in WhatsApp is not really working as most users expect it to work. When you receive a new message from someone whose chat you decided to archive, the chat will appear back on the main screen, distracting you from conversations that truly matter. The New Archive update will change this, ensuring that archive chats will always stay out of sight and out of mind.

In-App Notifications For iOS

All users of the WhatsApp iOS app can look forward to redesigned in-app notifications, which will display more information in the notification banner, including image and video thumbnails. When expanded, the notification banner will display a chat preview. It’s worth noting that the message read status won’t change when a user decides to expand the notification banner.

samsung's new exynos 2200 smartphone chip comes with amd xclipse gpu

Samsung’s Exynos smartphone series of ARM-based system-on-chips (SoCs) traditionally comes with Mali GPUs, but the company’s new premium SoC is breaking this tradition by featuring an Xclipse GPU with AMD’s RDNA 2 graphics architecture.

The new GPU, together with 8 Armv9 CPU cores (1 powerful Cortex-X2 core, 3 balanced Cortex-A710 cores, and 4 efficient Cortex-A510 cores) and an upgraded neural processing unit (NPU), are supposed to enable next-level mobile gaming experiences, support camera sensors with a resolution of up to 200 MP, and generally ensure smooth performance under all circumstances.

“Built on the most advanced 4-nanometer (nm) EUV (extreme ultraviolet lithography) process, and combined with cutting-edge mobile, GPU and NPU technology, Samsung has crafted the Exynos 2200 to provide the finest experience for smartphone users” said Yongin Park, President of System LSI Business at Samsung Electronics.

Samsung named its new GPU “Xclipse” to reflect the fact that it’s positioned between console and traditional mobile graphic processors. The South Korean conglomerate believes that the GPU will bring an end to the old era of mobile gaming and usher in a new era characterized by features that have until now been associated primarily with PC gaming, such as hardware-accelerated ray tracing and variable rate shading.

According to David Wang, Senior Vice President of Radeon Technologies Group at AMD, the Xclipse GPU is the first result of multiple planned generations of AMD RDNA graphics in Exynos SoCs, so fans of Samsung smartphones have a lot to look forward to in the future.

In addition to the already mentioned performance-oriented improvements, the Exynos 2200 integrates a better 5G modem capable of achieving speeds of up to 10 Gbps by utilizing both 4G LTE and 5G NR signals at the same time. The SoC’s Integrated Secure Element (iSE) can safely store cryptographic information for enhanced data security and privacy.

The Exynos 2200 is currently being mass-produced, and it’s expected that it will be one of the main selling points of the upcoming Galaxy S22 smartphone.
